In this SolidWorks 2015 training course, expert author Dean Kerste will teach you how to create sketches, 3D models, and engineering drawings using the tools in SolidWorks. This course is designed for the absolute beginner, meaning no previous experience with SolidWorks is required.
You will start by learning basic and intermediate sketching techniques, including lines, rectangles, polygons, and fillets. From there, you will explore basic and intermediate 3D features, such as extruded and revolved features, lofts, circular patterns, and reference geometry. This video tutorial will then cover how to build assemblies and apply mates between the corresponding parts. Dean will then show you how to use the parts and assemblies to create a drawing. Finally, you will learn how to add dimensions, notes, and a bill of materials in the drawing environment.
Once you have completed this computer based training course, you will be fully capable of using these tools and techniques to create your own 3D models and drawings using this 3D modeling software. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.
